HOW DO I PLAY WITH YOU GUYS IF I'M PLAYING...

ON THE PC?
You'll probably want to get in The Steam Group
which is invite only, so post in the thread with a link to your Steam Profile
like this: http://steamcommunity.com/id/jaunty/

And people have been gracious enough to have rented servers for us to play on! If you're not a regular already, be sure to put PA as your clan-tag so you don't accidentally get kicked when someone needs a slot:
#1 [PA] Black Wang Server (Chicago)
IP: 173.199.94.45
Admins: DietarySupplement, Jaunty
Currently Serving: Team Tactical, except SnD

#2 BloodSport [West]
209.247.83.209:3084
Admin: Rage
Currently Serving: Domination

Also a fair number of people have had trouble with performance on the PC, here are various tips and tricks that have helped a few people out:

I'm not sure if this fix has been posted yet, but I thought I'd throw it out there. I tested it myself and the difference is HUGE.

-launch blops multiplayer
-ctrl alt delete
-in your task manager, right click steam.exe and set priority to LOW
-set priority on blackopsmp.exe to HIGH

I still see people jumping around a little bit, but my PERSONAL performance is butter-smooth. It's like night and day, literally 100% better. Try it, if it works for enough people please put it in the OP.

I'm not 100% sure why this works, but there have been rumors that blops is not using video RAM effectively. If that's the case, setting the priority on the mp client higher is probably alleviating the problem at least partially by allocating a larger percentage of system RAM.

Reposted from some random website:
If your PC supports multi-threading:
seta r_multithreaded_device "1"
in config_mp.cfg (Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty black ops\players)

How do I improve the game's sound quality?
You can change sound to CD mode: 16 bits 44000 hz CD via control panel sound setting.

Misc. "potential" performance tweaks:
Run Steam in Offline mode > Start Black Ops > End the steam.exe process > Set BO process priority to high
/r_multiGpu - should be set to "0" if you do not have a multi-gpu graphics card.
/r_blur_allowed - people are reporting minor frame boosts with this set to "0"
/r_distortion - people are reporting minor frame boosts with this set to "0"
/r_dof_enable - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "0"
/r_glow_allowed - people are reporting huge frame boosts with this set to "0"
/cg_brass - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "0"
/r_cachemodellighting "1" - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "1"
/r_cacheSmodellighting "1" - people are reporting minor frame boosts with depth of field set to "1"

I tried all of these and it made no noticeable difference, maybe some of you will have better luck.

ON THE 360?

Metatags aren't really used anymore, just ask in this thread for buddies to play with!

Case in point:
[...] If you're on X360, send Mercy XXVI a FR with a message letting me know you're from PA. I pretty much only play BlOps, and I have plenty of room on my friend's list.

    Checked my "Killed By" stats last night after the talk about the knife.

    #1 is the AK74u with 580. #2 is the FAMAS with 520. #3 is the Knife with 470 D:

    The lowest is the Masterkey, which has killed me a total of 1 time.

    There's fun to be had, but if you don't feel like you need it I'd say this is the one to skip. Plot aside, there's hardly anything new at all here.

    It feels like a really big expansion pack more than a sequel to me. Granted, one I'm having fun with, but I don't people who skip it will miss much if they played other post-4 CODs.

    Edit: Not to mention it's really...uncomfortable seeing how much of the game is copied and pasted (in terms of gunplay, graphics, general game design, the core of the experience basically) even after the whole Infinity Ward thing went down. I feel like these guys are just raking it in for work they didn't do. But maybe that's another discussion. Bottom line, the multiplayer still coughs up the goods but its one to skip if you feel like you don't really need more COD.

    I just wanted to jump in and say that I played for a few hours last night after the patch and it was like a whole new game. All of the jumpiness and frame-rate twitchiness I was experiencing was completely gone and I actually felt like I could play. For reference, I'm running a E6750 (Dual-Core Proc) so I'm probably right in the target audience for the performance enhancements.

    To add to the OP's performance trickery, some people are reporting loud ambient sounds in levels on the pc. I was hoping that this would be fixed with the latest patch, but no... a temporary fix is to open the console after every level loads (during the countdown to play is best, or you might have to do it twice) and type /snd_restart.

    Loving this game so far (pc version). So far I'm sticking with the Steyr - might give the Commando a go at some point, but right now I'm comfortable with the Steyr.

    ...and I thought of how all those people died, and what a good death that is. That nobody can blame you for it, because everyone else died along with you, and it is the fault of none, save those who did the killing.

    I've had the same emblem god knows how long, but I have no creative spark as to what to replace it with.

    Sev: Your gameplay is the most heavily yomi based around. Usually you look for characters that allow you to force guessing situations for big dmg. Even if the guess is mathematically nowhere near in your favor lol. You're happiest when you have either a 50/50, 33/33/33 or even a 75/25 situation to go crazy with. And you will take big risks to force those situations to come up.

    Talking about my loadout from the previous thread, I like the Python as a back up for my shortrange classes since it instakills at every range, but I don't like it for this because of the limited magazine and the fact that its accuracy goes down the shitter after the first bullet. You have to fire slowly with the revolver to stay accurate, with the Colt at the ranges I'm fighting at it I can fire quickly and accurately without worrying about ammo.

    This isn't necessarily a bad thing, since the larger spread can help with latency and it winds up being the exact same as the Steakhouse, instead of more accurate.

You have to fire slowly with the revolver to stay accurate, with the Colt at the ranges I'm fighting at it I can fire quickly and accurately without worrying about ammo.

    The 1911 carries an extra three rounds over the Python in any scenario, sans Akimbo (which gives it a 6 round max capacity advantage) so the difference really isn't huge on that part. Also, in hardcore, if you have to spray to kill someone, you're fucked anyways. Take your time and make that first guaranteed one hit kill count.

    Is that dolly cam thing not in the PC version? I don't see any mention of it in the patch notes on Steam.

    The third person view? It should be there.

    Yay! I finally got my KDR up to 1.

    I know a lot of people don't care about this, but since I started playing FPSs last year I've had an atrocious KDR and almost never went positive. I've been changing up my play style and almost exclusively been playing Ground War this prestige, and I've taken it up from .73 to 1 over the last few thousand kills.

    Also, am I hearing that the PSG1 doesn't completely suck now?

    Commando/SOH is my favourite thing ever. I throw the masterkey under it as a fuck-you to people who try to stun around corners and go in for the knife.

    I wouldn't recommend using the Masterkey on the Commando.

    For whatever reason, it has a much, much larger spread than the Masterkey on any other weapon.

    I was using colt with ext mags, so its 14 rounds vs 6. If I need to engage multiple targets at close/med range, I can fire more rounds accurately in a much faster time than the revolver. The Revolver without SA I feel like I need to treat like a sniper rifle and have to pace shots very slowly to hit anything even at close range.


    So a forest of boob trees is sexist?

    Most people suck ass at FPS games when they start, myself included. It took about a year to get to a 1.0 in CoD4, and it's at like 1.74 or something now. My BLOPS average is about 2.7 or something due to not being averaged down.

    @blind: it's whatever. You know what I'd do for hardcore (besides not play it)? Just use a damn assault rifle.

    The PSG is only not complete garbage if it has no attachments on it, but even then, it's worse than an AR. It's more fun on a map like Array, but it's still outclassed.
    I <3 sniper rifles in this game, so fun

    This thing. I tried going into theater and switching it to free roam, but I didn't see any options for changing the camera mode.
